NBC Stations Renew ‘Martha Stewart’

Oct 31, 2006  •  Post A Comment

Sophomore syndicated series “The Martha Stewart Show” has been renewed for a third season, the show’s distributor NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution announced Monday.

The show has been sold to nine of the ten NBC owned and operated stations that carry the show, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and San Francisco for the 2007-2008 season. The third season has also been sold to stations from Gannett, Belo, Fisher, Scripps and others.

The announcement comes as Co-Executive Producer Rob Dauber exits the production amid a disappointing season-to-date performance compared to the prior year. A replacement has not yet been named.

“The series has distinguished itself by becoming a resource for everything how-to, and this early endorsement from our affiliates indicates their satisfaction with the show’s performance and its content,” said Sheraton Kalouria, President of Broadcasting, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, which produces the show.
